Jody Kay featured in the final showdown with top contender, Marsha K, in the 'Battle of the K's'. She walked away with $1 million cash and an album distribution deal. A front-runner known for her dramatic and well-rehearsed performances, Jody Kay entered the final night confident.

Marsha Kay, the wild card entrant of Rising Stars judge, Conroy Wilson, said her confidence had steadily built going into the final night. She received the second-place prize of $600,000.

The 26-year-old St Elizabeth Technical High School old girl was born and raised in the community of Crawford in the parish.

Following last week's renditions of three songs each by the two finalists, the Rising Stars judges had given Jody-Kay the edge 2-1.
